i keep pricking coz i would start at like a 94 and then the second or 3rd prick would be an 84. the tips of my fingers have these little dots now that i hope will go away once i don't have to do this anymore
The meters only have to have an accuracy of +-20% and even that is not achieved by a lot (there's been an article about this where only 16 out of 27 meters achieved the 20%: "system accuracy evaluation of 27 blood glucose monitoring systems accoring to DIN EN ISO 15197", Freckmann, 2010, diabetes technology&therapeutics).
So if you have a "true" level of 100, the meter may well give out 80 or 120 without it being broken - actually, the meters are better, but mine would only be within +-5% in 44% of all measurements and it's one of the better ones (ascensia contour).
